brown. i was involved with a guy who i always call prince charming. he was it. when he told me he loved me, it meant i loved myself that much more. i wanted to make him happy. he told me one night he didn't have a condom. i thought, okay, we're going to have a baby. it took me two weeks to be sick in the hospital with pneumonia and about 2 1/2 additional extra weeks to be told i was hiv positive. i'm very fortunate that i was tested when i was, because i never would have voluntarily went in to get one. i had too many to get hiv. i didn't look like hiv. i always thought hiv was somebody else's issue and not mine. i didn't care about it until it happened to me. >> do you have a pill box at home? maybe we can work on getting you a weekly pill box. i think they have two weeks in a pack. >> before i was diagnosed, i felt hiv looked like a helpless kid in african or a skinny, frail white man as tom hanks was in "philadelphia." that was my hiv education. i heard have o iv users and prostitutes. sometimes it is hard to tell them apart. that's the dalily dose annal. i had to be responsible and g
.c. judy brown is co-director of the project. i want to start with you. what do you think is the most important thing we need to do? >> thanks for having me. we have big things we have to do. voters are fed up with a broken election system and politicians who have tried to manipulate the law sos that people can't participate for their own partisan gain. what we have to do to fix this is we need to either go big or go home. what i mean by that is it is time for us to have national standards around running state and federal elections. in order to get there, we really are going to have to have a federal law that is passed or a constitutional amendment that will give us these national standar standards. right now, we have 13,000 election jurisdictions in this country that run elections 13,000 different ways? that's the part we have to fix. if we get the national standards, make it explicit in the constitution, we have a right to vote, all else will come from that, including fixing registration, fixing the time it takes us to vote. that's the big idea of where we have to go in this country
brown and folks like that and get to the 60 threshold and break the filibuster and if he was able to do that and it went to the house floor, there's no doubt it would pass and probably get enough republicans at the end of the day. the question is a, would he be able to break the filibuster in the senate, we don't know if that would happen. would boehner put it on the house floor and he said from day one, any plan he would like to see the majority and the republicans in the house move forward. if it were to go to the house i am very confident from conversations i've had that it would pass. >> nbc's luke russert. always appreciate the insights. >> nbc news senior political editor mike murray also digging this joining me live. president obama using the bully pulpit of his office to put pressure on congress.

the world to see. but the reality is that we have become accustomed to believing that little black and brown kids and poor white kids in various spots across our landscape are due this kind of violence. you know, we are surprised it happened here. it is not supposed to happen here, which means by implication that it is supposed to happen there in detroit or oakland or california and in l.a. and the like. i think that's the tragedy here. and when ari talked about adolescence, and the loss of adolescence, and what childhood do these young people have? we spend more time concerned about the rapper talking about the guns than the guns they are referencing, and we are more worried about the metaphoric and symbolic intensity than the actual violence. and in fact, some of the authority figures who rush to help the brothers and the s sisters in newtown and the police who are seen as helpers, and in those communities about which we speak, much of the violence and a significant portion of the violence is executed at the behest of a state authority whether a police person or the like against those vuln
-mundo in brown make up. >> i'm sorry, that happened? >> have you seen him on tele-mundo? >> the grinch's heart got bigger, he got more tan. >> same orange. >> i agree with you. we have to be careful about how we label things. the only thing they will hear is all of them in the race. clearly, it's not what i'm saying. it wasn't a year of racism. it was a year of white privilege. the idea is white privilege was so, like, they didn't understand what was happening. it was one of the first times where it happened and there's a chorus of people saying hey, that's a lot of white privilege you have there. what are you talking about? we are completely fine. it kept happening. it's why we noticed it so much. we called it out almost every time. >> what i like about the distinction, there was a moment when joe biden said something at a minimum a little tricky. listen to joe biden and his comment about where we might end up if romney ended up winning. >> romney wants to -- he said in the first 100 days, he's going to let the big banks write their own rules. unchain wall street. they are going to put y'all
versus virginia. employment discrimination, 13 years after brown versus board of education. the supreme court had a marriage case on its bokt in 1956. but kicked it. because it didn't want to touch it with a ten-foot pole so waited for more states to come around. it's also the year that guess who's coming to dinner comes out. there's a cultural legal convergence. we're at that moment for the gay community now. one of the historians in the gay marriage trial, nancy kauts, a historian of marriage, she said one of the emancipated slaves after -- the slaves flocked to get married. she testified that one of the emancipated slaves said the marriage covenant is a foundation of all of our rights. so i totally agree with rea that this is just the beginning but it is an important cornerstone to building full equality for lgbt citizens. >> this question of sort of how enslaved people thought about marriage, the extent to which they engaged in formal marriages and then the extent to which ones given the freedom it became one of the first things that free people did to represent their freedom is ins
